Emergency Services in Syria
For all travelers going abroad, especially to a country that is experiencing ongoing protests and political instability, it is very important to make sure you know where and how to get help if you need it.
Most governments right now warn against all but essential travel to Syria. If you do go, please be aware that your health insurance may not cover injuries that are related to acts of war or terrorism.
Check with your current insurer to see if you are covered while you are in Syria. If you do not have medical insurance that covers you while you are abroad, it is very important to get international medical insurance. Even though, your injuries from acts of war or terrorism may not be covered, all other medical needs will be covered. Most importantly, if you are injured or seriously ill, and require medical evacuation to another country or safer city, those charges may be covered. Without medical insurance coverage, emergency evacuation can be very expensive depending on your location, and medical condition.
